How to Groom a Havanese Video

I think this YoTube video demonstrates how to groom a Havanese dog the right way as well as how to cut Havanese hair. Not only that it also shows how to do it with maximize comfort for you as well as the dog.

Clipping faces, in particular around the eyes, is always tricky. This video provides a good demo of grooming Havanese face hair as well as how to groom the back, belly, tail and paws.

You can see from the video that the groomer suggests a full groom every 2 to 3 months. You just need to look past the ads in the video to see how valuable the content is.

This little Havanese is a sheer delight to watch, so affectionate but most importantly absolutely at ease with being clipped. Well, at least until it came to nail clipping and I don’t know any dog that is entirely okay about having their toe nails trimmed. But the groomer manages this task as well as the other grooming tasks. She uses a harness which keeps the dog in position without adding to any discomfort whatsoever.

You would have noticed right at the end of the video some brief tips on
how to keep Havanese hair from matting in particular the ears.

Grooming Table

The type of grooming table you choose will depend on whether you are simply doing your own grooming at home or managing a busy dog grooming salon professionally. If the former, you can find a selection here that might offer what you are looking for.

However, if it is a professional heavy duty grooming table that you are after then you might like to consider something along these lines:
